Cancer stages and grades
If you're diagnosed with cancer, you may then have further tests that can help to determine how far the cancer has progressed. Staging and grading the cancer will allow the doctors to:
- work out how large the cancer is,
- whether or not it has spread, and
- the best treatment options for you.
> Cancer Grades
Your cancer will be of a certain grade. The grade of a cancer depends on what the cells look like under the microscope.
